Description Clos du Marquis 2005.

The wine presents itself to our eyes with a magnificent deep garnet-red color. On the nose, it offers a complex, intense bouquet. Notes of black cherry, blueberry and blackberry can be detected. Hints of tobacco and old leather add complexity and pleasure. On the palate, the attack is frank and evolves with power and elegance. The finesse of the tannins gives the sensation of a dense, mellow mouthfeel. The greediness of the fruit is fully expressed, carrying us through to the racy, lightly oaky finish.
